  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk (using an electric whisk) the egg, coconut oil, sunflower butter, vanilla and monk fruit sweetener together.
  • Whisk in the sunflower meal, ground chia, baking powder, spices, and salt. Form a ball with the dough and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, about ⅛ inch thick. Cut out cookie shapes using a 3 inch round cutter. Re-roll any excess dough and cut out the extra cookies, until all the dough has been used up.
  • Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Place the cookies with spacing between them on the trays.
  • Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray before lifting onto a wire rack. They will firm up on the tray as they cool.
  • If using optional chocolate, place the chocolate and coconut oil in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt on a medium heat. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the dark chocolate over the cookies and allow to cool.
